Motorola Entice W766 Review

Performance:

Both the Motorola W755 and Motorola Entice W766 are identical in terms of reception and call quality as we were able to place and receive calls around south Florida without any of them being dropped. The earpiece volume had to be set to medium, since raising it to high would cause some distortion to be heard, which was also true while using the speakerphone. But with it set to medium the voice quality was good and natural sounding, and people that we called also said our voice sounded clear and natural.

Even though the Motorola Entice and W755 come with the same 940mAh battery (model BT51), the Entice is rated to get 5.5 hours of talk time while the W755 is rated to get 3.6 hours of talk time…almost 2 hours difference. We were curious about this and tested both devices, and in fact the Entice did get 5.5 hours of continuous talk time on a full charge, while the W755 was near 3.5 hours. This is a noticeable difference and we’re glad to see that the Entice does get more talk time on a charge than its predecessor.


Conclusion:

The Motorola Entice W766 is a slight improvement from the W755, as it offers a sleeker design, 2MP camera, larger displays, and 2 hours more talk time. Are these enough changes to warrant a person to upgrade from a W755 or V9m? Probably not, but it does make for some nice improvements for someone who wants to upgrade from an older V3m, however the Rapture VU30, LG VX8360, and Samsung Alias 2 provide some tough competition. In the end, our only main concern with the Entice is the issue we had with the internal display, so we suggest that you try it out first.

to be honest, I don't think I would consider the Alias2 and the w766 to be in the same catergory.
